Questions my clients ask me

Yes, of course. I frequently support schools on managing allegations of this sort, including liaising with the police and any relevant agencies, support with any reporting requirements to the Charity Commission and reputation management.

I would suggest you sign up for our regular schools briefing newsletter together with newsletters from any associations to which the school belongs. We will keep you updated (usually in advance) of any impending changes which may affect you and your pupils, staff and parents.
